Win a free iPhone 5 from iMore!



Hi iMore :)
I'm Aileen Timbol from the country of the Philippines. Im a simple girl living with a simple life with my Family. This is my WISH to have an iPhone 5. I hope i will win this .Thank you :)

Hi! I am from Portugal and I'm really a fan of iOS and iPhones, but I just can't afford to buy Apple items, so to have one I feel obligated to enter this contests. Hope I win ! Best luck to all of you :)

A part of me was missing

My soul was incomplete

Until I held it in my hands

On Saturday last week

For now I’ve left the Blackberry

My life means so much more

I never can go back (berry)

I love my iPhone 4

Its shiny screen and touchy things

The coolest apps, all free

I can’t imagine waking up

Without it next to me

It sounds just like a rooster

When it wakes me from my slumber

And the very bestest thing?

I didn’t have to change my number

My iPhone 4’s just like me

It’s smooth and full of charm

It knows when to be quiet

And when to raise alarm

Its flippy case, its bright white plug

Its Apple-flavoured glory

Oh iPhone 4, let’s tell the world

i barly new abouut this,im only 10 years old and i really want to get this so i dont have to ask my brothers for their phone.

i dont have an ipod ir none so i really want to get a phone no matter wich one

I'd like to win an iphone 5 as I don't have much money to buy such a mobile ,this would be great God help me.

I really want it but I can't afford it this is my only chance because the money I have I'm saving it for college and I don't have a job please I really need that phone thank you

I Am Kella Nguyen I Have Been Waiting For At Least 3 years!
I'm Using My IPod And It Has A Crack I can barely see so sorrye for the mistakes I would Relly like one for me thank u this is kella nguyen please let me win

I have no hope to win or own such a popular phone. Nor I can buy such phones. Been using my Nokia 1100 past 8 years, expecting that someday I would get a reputed job so that I can own an advanced phone. But not yet happened so or no hopes. But yes, i may won this.

i dont know i will win or not because there are very expert people here .....but i would like to express my feeling about this website that it allows a common man (individual) to win a thing which is impossible for a common man 2 expressing their hats off 2 this website.....................winning is not my intention

U guys are soo nice god bless you guys ur doing such a nice thing to but hopefully I win thanks a lot GOD BLESS

i have never been able to buy a phone, but when i saw this i was astonished to hear that you are giving free iphones! it would be dream come true if i get the chance and win!

hey, haha i dont have much. my dad died last year my mom left me a week ago saying i ruined her life. i dont have much just my daughter and i. well i would be the happiest girl alive if i wont the iphone5, well take care '']

Please give me iphone 5 as i have avery old samsung mobile and dont have enough fund to afford iphone 5.

I would really like to win an iPhone my mum says that i don't have a chance of ever getting an iPhone but i can dream and yeah just tginthink about it

I know I'm probably late but id really like one, my mom doesn't have enough money to buy me one and I really would love one,we were staying at a shelter before she had enough moneyy ti get a house, now she has 3 jobs just to pay off the rent man, please can I have this?




Basically my phone got robbed in Tesco's, the security guard saw it on CCTV and the police found the girl who stole it but she sold it to someone for £70! and won't say who! I thought I had orange insurance but turns out I don't and i'm still paying a double contract. Just doing what I can to try and get another iphone really, I've had a taste of the sweet workings of an iphone and am hungry for more!

If someone's going to win it would be great if it were me, but it wouldn't really be winning it would just be like going back in time to when I had an iphone, to a time when I was happy.

I like i Phone very much. It would be gud if I get one through this. otherwise I have to wait for 1 or more years to buy myself.
Thanx for this proposal anyways
